First-time poster here. I've been having on-and-off excruciating pain in my metatarsals for over three years. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in Oct 2014 with antibodies off the charts. I also did the adrenal fatigue saliva test and my results were almost flatline, at the bottom.
My naturopath (US) put me on 5 mcg of T3 from a compounding pharmacy. I've never been tested for reverse T3. I have been retested for thyroid function and various other things since, and my antibodies have come down. Vit D, ferritin, b12 are all much improved, thanks to the supplements protocol the naturopath recommended. My latest TSH was .71, which is half of what it was justjust 6 months prior. All of these are signs of progress.
But my feet are in excruciating pain that is worst in the morning and gets better as the day goes on. In fact, I am a runner, and have found that my feet feel better when I exercise.
I had xrays done at a podiatrist's office and there doesn't seem to be anything unusual going on with my joints. So what could this be? It is mystifying and debilitating.
